Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Ulster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2022-12-02

Leinster made it eight from eight last week and now take on Ulster in a first vs second battle.

Ulster are currently nine points behind Leinster but have a game in hand from when their game against the Sharks was postponed due to a mass outbreak of nasty stomachachery in South Africa. Ulster's only defeat so far this season was to Leinster on a wet night in Belfast.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Glasgow Warriors

Leinster are back after an interesting Autumn season for Ireland.

Ireland won all three games and in doing so made sure they beat the big three of South Africa, New Zealand and Australia in the same year. Yet, aside from about fifteen minutes in the second half of the South Africa game, they didn't actually play that well.

Match Preview: Scarlets vs Leinster Rugby

It was a strange game last Saturday evening against Munster.

Though the crowd was the biggest seen in years, the atmosphere was oddly muted with a constant stream of chatter amongst the patrons going in and out to refill their plastic cups. Although both teams were badly affected by injuries, Leinster had the stronger core of experience that made them favourites for a big win. But instead the game was competitive almost until the last few moments when Leinster scored the bonus point try.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Munster Rugby

It's Leinster v Munster at the Aviva this Saturday evening.

It's not really a fixture to quicken the blood anymore first because of the rather soulless location and secondly because of the lack of jeopardy in the fixture for Leinster. In the last fourteen meetings between the two sides, Munster have only won twice and one of them was a meaningless Rainbow Cup fixture that Leinster virtually conceded as it came the week before a European semi-final. From the glory days when it was close to selling out most of the time the crowd has gradually been reducing and there were loads of empty seats there last May.

What. A. Game!!!

Games at the RDS have often been so one-sided over the last few years that the match-day experience has become a bit drab. It was noticeable that even after losing to the Bulls in the semi-final last season, the home fans were still raving about witnessing a really competitive game and what that did for the atmosphere. You could tell the fans were looking forward to something similar last Saturday with the best attendance for a non-derby in a long time and the Sharks didn't disappoint.
